With the start of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations just over two weeks away, fans of the Super Eagles are already stepping up their preparations to cheer on their players in Ivory Coast.

Looking to end their 11-year wait for AFCON glory, Nigeria will be looking to put on a show this time around having suffered a round-of-16 exit to Tunisia in their last continental tournament.

For fans of the West African country, travelling to a new country understandably takes its toll financially due to the expenses of accommodation, feeding and other logistics.

However, below is a list of affordable hotels where Nigerian supporters can house themselves during their stay in Ivory Coast.
